Dhoni seeks Rs 100 crore in damages

Chennai, Mar 18: Indian captain MS Dhoni is seeking Rs 100 crore in damages from a TV network for bringing his hard-earned reputation under stake.

According to a report in "The Times of India", Dhoni has moved the Madras High Court seeking damages of Rs 100 crore from "Zee".

The report added that Dhoni, today, won an interim order from the court restraining "Zee" group from telecasting interviews or news pertaining to certain IPL match-fixing allegations against him.

Dhoni, who captains Chennai Super Kings (CSK), said that his hard-earned reputation was under stake and his name was being sullied by unverified reports.

The sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 6) was hit by match-fixing, spot-fixing and betting scandals.

The Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee submitted its report and Supreme Court will hear the matter on March 25.
